Caption This 48

Please caption this image
[Click here for instructions on how Caption This works]

Laval, QC, August 2007 [Click to embiggen]

For the record, no living beings were harmed while photographing this scene. My wife, on the other hand, thought I was a little silly for doing so.

Your turn: Name or caption this image in a comment. I promise you it'll be fun. Entries are free, so submit as many as you wish.

About last week's image of the dandelion: I got lots of great responses to this one. Many honorables this time out:
  • Melanie, Anne and Heidi: "Make a wish"
  • Jan Scholl: Geodesic
  • Robin: "Blow job" (I laughed for a while when I first read this one!)
  • Tabor: "Missed one!"
  • Slim: "Sometimes it's okay to give into temptation..."
  • Awareness: "Wishful thinking......."
  • Dak-ind: "Not on MY lawn!"
  • Pastormac's Ann: "Awaiting the sacred breath of freedom..."
  • Moi: "Here today, gone tomorrow!"
So who's the winner, then? Kudos go to Steve for the inspired "queued tip". As with past winners, it spoke to me the loudest.

Have fun with this week's Jeff Goldblum-inspired image!

One more thing: This will either inspire or sicken you, but this image was captured in a restaurant. The little sucker was buzzing around the window, and I zoomed in on him when he took a break from annoying everyone around him (her? Who knows...)

Either way, I'll keep the name of the restaurant quiet to protect the guilty.

Not so much 'eww!' as 'phew!'....

I thought you had been photographing roadkill again...

Michele sent me, honey, and I am struggling to think of a caption...

How about the Russian proverb:
'Flies and priests can enter any house.'

"Would you like to land on my soup?"

Not very original but what do you expect? It is almost midnight. I need my beauty sleep.

Miche sent me here to whisper into the fly's ear telling it to fly away.

Whew, Carmi...I'm just thankful my IP address wasn't banned!

And, yes, kudos to Stephen..."Queued Tip" was delicious :).

I'll be back, but how in the world will a FLY inspire us this week?


Smiler said...

-"Ewwww. Did you know they have all this hair all over them too?"

-"I tell you Mother nature must've really had it in for those things. Doesn't get much uglier than that."

I'm sure Michele would come up with something better - I'm sleep deprived.

All I have is "shoo fly, don't bother me"....Perhaps I have been around the preschool set way too long!!

Anne said...

yahoo! I get another honorable mention this week. Pressure's on for this week.

How 'bout that?
"Pressure's on" is good for that ol' fly.

Or this: "Fly or Die."

Michele sent me this time.

I just want to say Carmi, that I find much inspiration and calming peace in all the things of nature (even this fly, in a funny way)...Living things--plants, bees, flowers, birds, etc....ALL feed my soul. I hope you do take more pictures of all the nature that is around you....Hey, how about your Doggie?

" I may be small but my plan for world domination is right on schedule"

I know it's weird but it looks like the fly is rubbing its legs together in anticipation of his plot like a Bond villain would!

Just popped by to say hi. I am very busy at the moment so haven't been able to visit blog friends much.

Linda said...

"Introducing....the new iFly! Carmi Levy will be speaking about the newest technological advance from Apple, Inc, on CBC later this month."

sister AE said...

I've got nothing for this one, sorry, but I thought I'd let you know that I contributed to the Cafe Writing prompt with your chess pieces. I came up with a poem this time, instead of a story.

Robin ~ PENSIEVE said...

I've got more...your "Caption This"s haunt me, lol.

"Fly spy"

"Fly see you...!"


"Man who catch fly with chopsticks accomplish anything." (Quote from "The Karate Kid")

and with that movie in mind,

"On the run from Mr. Miyagi"

I think I'm done, but one never knows, eh, Carmi?


Lori Schmidt (LoriProPhoto) said...

Hi Carmi, havent visited here in ages, have been struggling to keep my blog up too but am glad to see you are still keeping at it LOL.

OM Gosh Jeff and THE FLY, that conjures up dreadful visions LOL, that was definitely a disturbing movie!!

Can't think of a caption at this time, my brain is a mush at the moment.

I am going to try to catch up on some of your posts. Hope you are keeping warm.


Lori Schmidt (LoriProPhoto) said...

Okay here is something maybe

"Yummy .... Jeff spies a tasty morsel and rubs his hands in glee"


gemma said...

Zippidee Doo Dah - Now to practice the back stroke..where's the soup?

Michele sent me...great picture.

MsT said...

Oh my - that will teach me to read the entire entry before posting - I totally missed your Jeff Goldblum reference and here I thought I was so unique with my caption!

Let's try this one: "Objects in mirror are closer than they appear."

"I know an old lady who swallowed a fly..."

"Don't you wish YOU could be the fly on the wall?"

Ok, I've been finally able to identify how I feel when I look at this photo:

"Now I lay me down to sleep...I pray the Lord my soul to keep."

What? I can't help it. It looks like it's praying.

awareness said...

"Straighten up and fly right...."

Nestor Family said...

"You gonna eat that?" (as said by the fly)

Interesting photo this week, Carmi!
